Feb 18 2020 - 5:30am

My love for Rihanna's outfits [1] (and her music) has never wavered over the years, and, like many, I often find myself looking to the singer for outfit inspiration. Rihanna [2] has the ability to wear a sexy slip dress one second and a sporty tracksuit the next, all without batting an eye.

Rihanna [3]'s also never afraid to try tricky trends like wearing a dress over a pair of pants [4], and that's something we can all admire. It's one of the main reasons I turn to the singer to get some styling tips. If you're wondering how to dress like Rihanna, allow me to break it down for you. First off, it seems like no outfit of hers is complete without a hefty dose of confidence — it's an essential. While the singer's red carpet looks [5] are often bold and eye-catching, her casual street style [6] is a lot more relatable. Ahead, I'm breaking down 18 outfits that made me want to dress like Rihanna.

A White Strapless Dress Goes Perfectly With a Top-Handle Bag

You Can't Go Wrong in a Leather Look

Rihanna [9] proved that you can give an all-black outfit a sleek touch with leather pieces. She styled a black leather coat with matching pants and heels while in London.

Mixing Prints Is Always a Good Idea

Tone Down a Slip Dress With a Blazer

This outfit was anything but boring. In 2019, Rihanna [15] paired a silk skirt with an oversize blazer and went without a shirt [16], bringing this all-beige look to the next level.

Make a Statement With a Fuzzy Pink Coat

Is Rihanna [17] a genius? I think so after she styled a half-unbuttoned denim skirt over her Savage x Fenty lingerie tank [18] with a pink Marc Jacobs coat, a mini Fendi Peekaboo bag, and a "Savagex" necklace.

Styling a dress over pants? Why not. While in Seoul, Rihanna [19] wore a pink button-down Jacquemus dress [20] over a pair of orange pants.
